    SEMA: 1978 Chevy 4x4 E-Rod is a factory-fresh restomod
    1383772860

    Among the Stingrays, Camaros and various concept vehicles Chevrolet has setup at its massive SEMA display, the one vehicle tugging at our heart strings the most might be the fully restored 1978 Chevy Performance Classic Truck Concept. While this truck's beauty is merit enough, Chevy also tucked...

    SEMA: Chevy Spark EV Tech Performance flaunts 450 lb-ft and two-tone paint job
    1383771540

    We like the Chevrolet Spark EV because it's a relatively affordable electric vehicle that's fun to drive, thanks to a respectable 140 horsepower and, more importantly, 400 pound-feet of torque being pumped out of its electric motor. The only major criticism we had regarding the EV in our First...

    SEMA: Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker and Mopar '14 Challenger up the retro appeal
    1383769200

    The reborn Dodge Challenger might be getting a bit long in the tooth, having been on the market in its current form since 2008, but Chrysler isn't going to give up on its brutish, full-size two-door just yet. For this year's SEMA Show, the Challenger will be getting a new Mopar edition, as well...

    SEMA: Hot Wheels Ford Transit Connect is worth more if we keep it in the box
    1383767940

    If the 2014 Transit Connect is anything like it's utile current-generation predecessor, and we suspect it is, it will undoubtedly be one of the most functional vehicles in North America. Ford has used the occasion of SEMA to turn the TC in to things that both make use of that functionality, and...

    1383764400

    The big guns are starting to roll out at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This is the Bisimoto Hyundai Genesis Coupe, the promised 1,000-horsepower monster that was first shown at the end of September. We ventured across the SEMA floor to get an up-close look at this hugely powerful two-door. ...

    SEMA: Pure Vision Design TT Camaro has 1,400 reasons to want it
    1383760800

    We've talked about Pure Vision Design before, a California-based company that made waves at last year's SEMA show with its Martini-liveried, Indy-car-powered Ford Mustang. That same car later starred in a Petrolicious video we showed you just a few weeks back. The company's latest creation is a...

    SEMA: Bisimoto 2014 Honda Odyssey packs 1,029 hp plus the kids
    1383759000

    You know, the last time I drove a Honda Odyssey, I thought, "Man, this thing could really use another 781 horsepower." Thank goodness for the folks at Bisimoto, then, who have brought this "Power-Van" to the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. It's your standard seven-passenger Honda Odyssey with...

    SEMA: Mazda doubles down with a pair of Threes
    1383755340

    Looking to appeal to the compact tuner crowd, Mazda brought two different flavors of its 2014 Mazda3 to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week. The Club Sport 3 Concept hatchback (above) has more of a racing vibe to it, while the Vector 3 Concept sedan (right) looks to inject a little extra...

    SEMA: Music-inspired Kia Souls overload our senses
    1383751740

    SEMA has been pretty mellow this year in terms of over-the-top mod jobs. Sure, there have been some questionable choices, but none have been quite as questionable as the vehicle you see above. This is one of five versions of the redesigned Kia Soul that have been rolled out for the show, all of...

    Official: Ford jumps back in the water with marinized 6.2L V8
    1383749880

    Nameplates like the Mercury Mariner and Lincoln Navigator aside, Ford hasn't offered a marine engine in over two decades. But through a new partnership with one of the biggest names in the business, the Dearborn-based automaker is dipping its proverbial toes back in the water. Announced...

    SEMA: 2013 SEMA Awards go to same four vehicles as last year
    1383748140

    The winners of the 2013 SEMA Awards have been announced, and, well, the group is identical to the winners of the 2012 Awards. The Ford Mustang was named Hottest Car, while the Scion FR-S earned honors for Hottest Sport Compact. In the heavy machinery classes, the Ford F-Series won Hottest Truck...

    SEMA: Ford F-100 'Snakebit' shown off by Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed at SEMA
    1383703200

    Ford, along with KISS bassist Gene Simmons and his wife, Shannon Tweed, used SEMA as a backdrop to pull the covers off Snakebit, a 1956 Ford F-100 pickup truck that's been updated with Shelby Mustang-derived styling bits and a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine. All 550 horsepower are funneled...

    Official: 2014 Challenger R/T Shaker, Mopar '14 Challenger bring back iconic hood
    1383701460

    Enamored of the Dodge Challenger but wish you could get one with a shaker hood? We've got good news, because Dodge and Mopar have teamed up to bring it back. The 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker packs the same 5.7-liter Hemi V8 as the standard Challenger R/T, but upgrades the business end...

    SEMA: Mazda hits Vegas with a pair of Sixes
    1383699540

    Despite the fact that the annual SEMA show is more of an exercise in what "could be" than what "will be," it gives automakers the chance to stretch the legs of some of its most important models. Take the 2014 Mazda6, for example – it's hardly new, having gone on sale early this year...

    SEMA: Ford Fiesta ST customs get wild at SEMA
    1383697260

    The massive 57-car SEMA showcase by Ford ranges from obvious aftermarket-friendly models like the Mustang, to the not so obvious ones, like the Transit Connect and cute-as-an-explosive-button Fiesta ST. Ford plucked several Fiesta STs for SEMA duty, and we were on the show floor today to get a...

    SEMA: Jeff Gordon's SS Performance Sedan Concept unleashes car's potential
    1383693660

    Compared to the stock Chevrolet SS sports sedan, Jeff Gordon's version looks much meaner (in a good way). Somehow it comes off as more butch than the upgrades would suggest, almost as if it has a wide-body kit (compare the Chevrolet Jeff Gordon SS Performance Sedan Concept to the near-production...

    SEMA: Chevrolet Corvette concept duo is our kind of East Coast-West Coast battle
    1383692400

    Car culture on each coast of the US has historically been markedly different, and Chevrolet aims to show some of the differences with a pair of Corvette concepts at SEMA. Representing the East Coast is the Corvette Stingray Convertible Atlantic concept, while the Corvette Stingray Coupe Pacific...

    SEMA: Three of four Focus STs show up in Ford display at SEMA
    1383689940

    A couple of weeks ago we highlighted four Focus STs that Ford said it would be bringing to SEMA, and three out of the four cars have made it thus far (sorry, no Lotus-themed Focus ST yet). We were really looking forward to the Gulf-themed Focus ST built by Universal Technical Institute (below,...
